#218 - ARQLITE - COMPLEX PLASTIC UPCYCLING INTO MULTI-USE ARTIFICIAL GRAVEL, CALIFORNIA, USA
Arqlite offers its upcycling technology to big plastic waste generators (companies and municipalities) currently landfilling the complex plastics with no market value: laminates, aluminized, mixed, degraded, etc. Rates charged vary depending on the region and are projected to be cost-competitive to landfill tipping fees.
Arqlite manufactures an artificial gravel used in the manufacture of light concretes, precast elements, drainages for landscaping and green rooftops, hydroponics, home improvements and many more. The product has already been tested and validated in Argentina and is now being tested under US standards by companies like US Concrete, Cemex and Quikrete.
The pilot facility in Buenos Aires, Argentina, has a capacity of 150 tn/mo, and Arqlite is working on the opening of its first large scale facility in California , with a projected capacity of 1500 tn/mo, by October 2020.
The received financial support will allow Arqlite to offer its upcycling services to companies or cities that have no budget assigned for diverting these plastics from the environment scaling exponentially our range and impact.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Arqlite is already solving the problem of plastic waste by offering an upcycling solution for complex plastics (aluminized, laminated, degraded, mixed, etc) that is designed to scale and cost competitive even to landfill tipping fees.
Our very first product is the first commodity ever made 100% from mixed plastic waste. We call it Arqlite Smart Gravel. Of course it's sustainable and it's also smart as it's safe, it doesn't require any hidration, it's three times lighter and ten times better insulator than mineral gravel.
